Ally & Mike Canandaigua Lake Session

Ever since I first walked Canandaigua City Pier and the boathouses, I knew I wanted to shoot there. Ally & Mike were the perfect couple for this night. While this was only their three year dating anniversary, they’ve been over 10 years in the making and already practiced getting married (I met them as our models at a Styled Shoot earlier this year).

I’m so thankful to have nights like these where I am enveloped into another couple’s love story, learn about what they love about each other, and create memories for them to look back on as they continue down their forever together.

Finger Lakes Photography: Jimmy and Melinda Engagement

I’ve known Jimmy since I made the move to Rochester, New York, and met Melinda not too far behind. From the beginning they knew, as well as anybody that met them, that this was it, they had found the one. And while they may have gotten tired of the “are you engaged yet?” chatter, this moment, I know, made it all worth the wait.

A mistaken date for a fall festival, an in with the mountain manager, and a hike  he was really excited for turned into a day Melinda soon won’t forget.

Jimmy and Melinda, thank you for letting me be a part of this day. It was a true blessing to watch you say “YES” (of course after saying “Are you serious?” a few times). Congratulations and all the best as you embark on this next adventure in your lives.
